Did some personalizing on the new coach. Mama is happy now with the decorations and I am happy with the new recliner.

Got a portable Progressive Industries unit and also linked my camper's entry door to my wireless home security system. Now feel safer on a couple of different levels.

I also do the arm trick , but be sure to look UP!! also ( branches ) almost hit one one time

What I found works for me is to use my level. It is 32" long, fist I check obstructions with the length of the level if I have doubts, next I place it vertically along the outside wall to check for side to side level. Finally I head up to the tongue and place it on the frame as I level off front to back, it really saves on the back and forth.

This is the display that I purchased: Clicky

I actually purchased 2 of them and have one outside in a convenient place for a quick check when at storage. The one outside is wired to the battery so it's always on.
Pretty neat. Thanks.

I'd love to see a pic of where it's wired.

And the red light on mine means an open circuit or a blown fuse.

Got it back, glanced inside, and took it to the storage lot.

Nice day yesterday 70+. Pulled the RV out of its storage slot inspected the roof and installed the wingman that was purchased awhile back. Backed it into its slot putting it to sleep for a couple more weeks.
